How to Create Opt-Out Letters

104 11
    • 1). Call the toll-free customer service number for the company you wish to send an opt-out letter. Tell the company to mail you a copy of its current privacy policy, for your records.

    • 2). Write a letter to the company using the address on the privacy notice. Get to the point in the first paragraph of the letter as you clearly state that the company does not have your permission to share personally identifiable information such as your name and address.

    • 3). State in the second paragraph that the company also does not have your permission to share information about your creditworthiness with any of the company's affiliates, such as another credit card brand. Tell the company you are opting out under rights provided by the Fair Credit Reporting Act, a federal law.

    • 4). Write that you also do not wish to receive marketing offers from the company and that you are requesting removal of your name from the company's marketing list and databases. This step is optional, as you can elect to receive direct solicitations from the company but not allow the company to share your information with others.

    • 5). End the letter by thanking the company for respecting your privacy. Ask that the company respond to your letter in writing and confirm acknowledgment and implementation of your requests.
